This collection of videos from around the web highlights many of the various reasons we need to colonize space now, before we run out of cheap energy or suffer a major global catastrophe and no longer have that ability; ways for us to solve our energy problems both on planet Earth and off-planet; and many other subjects related to human colonization of space. Each video is copyright to the owner, but freely available on the web for non-profit use.
This list is entirely editable, and if you have found a video on the web that will better cover a subject that is already here, or one that comes under a new heading, please add it to the list by editing this page. If you don't know how to do that then please read the help files by clicking on the help link at the left of this screen; it's really quite simple to do.
